As a reviewer from Tool-rank.com recently raved, SureCan is “the best gas can I have ever used. It is a gas can that doesn’t leak and doesn’t spill, even when you are trying to use a heavy, full gas can to fill a small chainsaw tank.”

This spill-proofing is especially important these days, given that the EPA has strict new rules regarding gas cans to cut down on spillage and the venting of gas fumes into the atmosphere. Tool-rank.com again: “With these new regulations, the EPA made the cheap and common plastic gas can a thing of the past, which had the side effect of putting some gas can manufacturers out of business. If you have had a hard time finding a cheap gas can, this is why.”

The durable, six-layer, high-density polyethylene container features stainless steel springs, aluminum rivets, viton seals and a self-ventilating feature. SureCan calls its product the greenest red can on the market.

Prices vary: 2.2 gallon can, $37; 5 gallon can, $45.
